Studio Lighting for Portrait Photography

We will begin with a look at the role of light in setting the mood of a portrait, and then look at the essential gear photographers need for studio strobe-light portraiture. Common one-light, two-light and three-light lighting techniques, explaining exposure, metering considerations, and light modifiers are also introduced.
